As Southerners, we know the importance of a warm welcome and always make the extra effort to bookend our requests with "please" and "thank you." So while this tip for amazing service while flying may come as no surprise to folks in our neck of the woods, it's certainly worth a reminder: Say hello to your flight attendants when boarding a plane.

It sounds trite and probably is, but all these years later I can’t get past the icky feeling of having someone not even think I am worth a simple 'hi' or even just a quickly flashed smile."
